We Love Our Volunteers!

“Thank you to of all our volunteers who give freely of their time to make the patients, residents, and visitors to Bingham Memorial feel welcomed.”

Bingham Memorial Hospital (BMH) has been blessed over the years to have a strong team of volunteers who play such a vital role in keeping our hospital running smoothly. In honor of National Volunteer Appreciation Week, we would like to thank the many volunteers who give freely of their time to make the patients, residents, and visitors to Bingham Memorial feel welcomed.

Our volunteers collectively give more than 5,000 hours of personal time each year, which helps us provide world-class healthcare with a personalized touch. We have volunteers that help in administration, the front desk, office supply, materials management, and the gift shop. They also operate an in-house beauty salon, play the piano, and read to the residents in our Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

“We are always proud to celebrate the generosity of our remarkable volunteers during this week,” said Jeff Daniels, CEO of BMH. “They donate their time and energy to care for our community and patients. They always go above and beyond by assisting family members, wearing a welcoming smile, sharing kindness with a patient, and spreading hope and encouragement.”

“I have personally loved getting to know and working with our volunteers,” said Mindy Moore, BMH’s human resource and volunteer coordinator. “I’m proud of our growing group and how far we have come. Our volunteers are some the most dedicated people I’ve ever met, and I couldn’t be more grateful and proud of every one of them.” As our small way of saying “Thank You” to all of the men and women who give so much based on a desire to help out and give back, Mindy will be holding our highly anticipated annual volunteer appreciation luncheon on April 15.

If it wasn’t for these caring individuals getting involved and giving of their time freely, our hospital wouldn’t be as successful as we are at providing caring and compassionate care. Our volunteers bring such a positive energy to the hospital as they lead by example—not only by helping our patients and visitors, but by motivating others to give back as well.

For the younger generation, if you think you might be interested in a career in healthcare, then volunteering at a local hospital is a great way to gain life experience and insight into the medical profession. Additionally, highlighting volunteer work on a job application, resume, or college application looks impressive.
